I created the “Travellers’ Tales” section to give other travellers an opportunity to talk about their travels. Today I would like to introduce you to Kristen, a freelance stage manager and travel blogger based in New York City. She blogs at The Touring Yorkie .
I would love to hear about your travels too. Go to “Travellers’ Tales” , fill in the quick questionnaire and email it to me with your blog links.
I’m Kristen and I’m a freelance stage manager who loves travel. I was on the North American tour of Newsies for two years, which inspired me to blog about my travels. I rescued a Yorkie while I was traveling and he’s the mascot. I currently live in New York City with my husband, working on Broadway and traveling as much as I can.
It’s not quite a memory but there’s a photo of me as a baby on my first plane ride, going to Louisiana for a family reunion. For some reason, me and my brother both have Mickey Mouse ears on so as a kid I was convinced we went to Disney World but my first time wasn’t until I was 13!
A quick trip to Chicago for a friend’s wedding.
Getting drinks at the tiki-speakeasy Three Dots and a Dash. It’s an awesome bar and has delicious drinks!
Any trip to Australia. My husband is Australian and we try to visit every couple of years. It’s such a gorgeous country and I feel like there’s always so much more to do there. My husband grew up in Manly (Sydney) and his parents have a gorgeous view of the harbour.
Right now it’s Banff and Lake Louise in Canada. It’s such a gorgeous place in the world and I only went for a day trip. I can’t wait to go back for hiking and a stay at the gorgeous Fairmont Lake Louise.
You have to see Lake Louise. It’s such a gorgeous colour. And although the line for the boat rentals may be long, it’s so worth it. The photos and views are amazing.
My husband and dog are #1, but I also have to credit my friend Jill. We backpacked through Europe and have travelled 3 continents together.
Sleep mask – I can sleep anywhere, any time of day with it.
Be open – plans are great but what happens if the weather is awful or you hate a place. Half the fun of traveling is discovery.
Anywhere with an overwater bungalow. They look heavenly.
I did an exchange-type program in France one summer during high school. On a train, I loudly declared I was horny, rather than hot (temperature). Unfortunately, I am hot and “je suis chaude” are not direct translations.
Thank you, Kristen, for sharing your fascinating travels with us!
